    A fab theme park with a mixture of different rides. Galaxys Edge is amazing so well themed you actually feel you are in a Star Wars film. Toy Story land is brilliant the Slinky Dog rollercoaster is so much fun.

    Another lovely park with a mixture of rides and getting to experience going on a safari ride to see the animals. A great education on animal conservation. The only negative I have is that the park closes early so you don’t get to see Pandora light up at night.

    The main theme park of Walt Disney World is beautiful with the stunning Cinderellas castle. A great park for all ages with new rides added. Tianas Bayou Adventure is a replacement for Splash Mountain and it is a lovely colourful ride were you can get wet at the end. Then there is Tron which opened last year. This is a fab fast and exciting ride.

  • 5 stars:

    My favourite park such an easy going park. It has a great mixture of rides and educational areas. Guardians is an absolutely fantastic rollercoaster so different. So fast and the music really adds to it. Then you have world showcase which gives you a taste of different countries around the world.

    Trusted Customer reviewed Epcot 23 Jul, 2024

  • 4 stars:

    Good water park but incredibly busy. Plenty of loungers and chairs but little to no shelter/ shade. Would highly recommend booking a cabana at extra cost if you plan on staying the whole day. Or at least being there as the park opens to hire parasols (extra cost). Good variety of water slides, lazy river, wave pool and other pools more suitable for younger children. Would also recommend water shoes rather than flip flops so they don't come off on the slides and can be worn around the park too as the ground can be extremely hot walking from one slide to the next. No shortage of inflatables for the lazy river. (Visited in July)

    Probably my favourite park though the kids weren't as interested. World showcase is something else!!! Galaxy of the guardians is fantastic. 4th of July fireworks were incredible. Spent a day and a half here and could definitely have went another day.

  • 5 stars:

    Great park. So much to see and do. Glad we had 2 days to do this park. Queue times were surprisingly low, 40mins roughly was the longest while we were there in July however we didnt want to do some the the biggest rides eg tron, mine train. Could spend hours walking around main street alone. Alot of the rides are very similar though just themed differently but perfect for younger children. Plenty of places to eat and although very busy we always got a table. Parade and fireworks show are a must.
